Even before Freedom Waters was a nonprofit I called Deb Frenkel to get information about Adapted Sailing because we wanted to start a program in Traverse City Michigan. I saw her passion and heart to reach out to those who needed that extra encouragement or adaptation to be successful. She worked with me endlessly, by phone, to help structure the program and get the boats we needed. She listened to me cry from discouragement, but NEVER gave up on me. Here we are 4 years later with 5 boats and a program that has helped hundreds of children and adults enjoy the water, and achieve independence through sailing. I've watched FWF grow and I am amazed at what the leadership and volunteers have accomplished. Our program is now reaching out to other communities, and passing the torch that Freedom Waters gave us.
